Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Dwight Winter Carnival, #47...

 There's another one in the books.  A great day, starting with the Lions' Club Pancake
Breakfast, awarding the Bob Palmer Volunteer of the Year award to very deserving Tanya Grainger, and then getting down to the fun of the day, with so many activities for all ages.

Science North fascinated the kids. (and the big kids, too!)

but then, who doesn't enjoy watching stuff 'blow up' in the kitchen?  A little of this, a dash of that, and voila, a volcano!!!

Lots of treats for sale by the local Public School, and of course, we all had to bring some home.

Tug and Jake were patient, kind and enduring, ignoring passing snowplows and taking plenty of trips down to the beach and back.

There was snow art, and lots of pop-up games -- baseball, hockey, football and more!

 Plus, you could Go Fish...

 or try pedaling a Fat Bike - these are amazing on snow packed trails, but they do give you a workout!

Music, of course...

 The Lions Club have almost reached their goal to build year round accessible washrooms for Dwight Beach. Those will be welcome!
 The drum circle being set up. When I cam back, it was really crowded.
 Arts and crafts for little hands.

A silent auction.

Archery -- and yes, they patiently taught us all how to properly hold the bow and aim.  Even if they didn't turn us all into Caitness from the Hunger Games, it is great to try out.

 Mini putt!!! This was new this year, and what a fun addition.

There were nine entries in the Great Chili Cook-off...   we tried them all....

The day wrapped up with a performance by Yuk Yuks Comedy Cabaret.

Winter Carnival season is in full swing -- Dorset Snowball is happening Next Weekend.    It's worth coming to the north country to enjoy these festivals.
